An Accidental Awakening: It's not about yoga; It's about family
She lost her career to a spinal injury. She lost herself to motherhood. Then Stephanie's best friend invited her to join a year in yoga, which turned out to be more than she bargained for. An Accidental Awakening is yoga off the mat and into life as she is thrown into qigong in the snow, fire ceremonies on her lawn, walking on hot coals, tapping her sixth sense, chanting, ranting and crying - all while making meals and tucking kids into bed in-between. Using the chakras as a roadmap and yoga, her vehicle, Stephanie takes readers on a year-long adventure down an ancient path toward healing.
Told in a style that the New York Times describes as "self-help memoir," An Accidental Awakening offers readers the tools and inspiration they need to transform their lives: to find family in yoga and yoga in family.

About the Author
Hrehirchuk's warm, relatable voice as narrator will keep readers invested, while leading them to accept that they too could aspire to such a spiritual journey. The witty chapter titles provide a humorous and playful reprieve from the more serious underlying subject matter--rehabilitating oneself physically and spiritually. Hrehirchuk powerfully emphasizes the connection between the physical and psychological. The detailed acknowledgment of the narrator's growth over her year of yoga is inspiring, funny, and heartwarming, and the narrative comes full circle at the end, focusing on the blessings of family.
